I got the same email. Thought it was a strange promotion for Quickflix to be promoting a competitors service. Neon is a Sky subsidiary and Quickflix is a debt riddled Australian company that has been on the brink for quite a while.


I have seen no announcements of a Sky buyout.

They've had a marketing agreement for quite a while, I tried neon put the first time they sent the email 6+months ago. Not sure why they sent it to me again as I already used the previous one and it says new subscribers only.

Woah, you know your business is in trouble when you take advertising from a direct competitor to stay afloat.
